A Treatment for Those in Treatment during the Holidays
by Rev. Kamatara Johnson, Director of Collaborative Ministries
There is only One Love, One Heart, One Mind that is God expressing in infinite ways. God is each person, each place, each thing, each time, each relationship, and on and on. Truly God is all there is.
And so I am an expression of God in the here and now. So too is each member of my family, each friend I have, and each person who serves every one of us in our time of need.
Specifically, today, I affirm the best care possible for those in physical need this holiday season, for all those in rehab, the hospital, home health, assisted living, and so on. For all those facing surgery or emergency during the holidays, I know the arms of the Divine are around the person in need and guiding the person who is helping that person in need. For all the care-givers, I affirm strength and peace of mind as they support their loved one in need. I see healing and replenishment for each person involved, physically and emotionally. There is no struggle, only tender, loving care and Divine Resolution.
I give thanks for all the nurses, doctors, technicians, volunteers, and workers at the hospitals, in people’s homes, in rehabs and senior care. I’m grateful for their service and expertise, for their strength and their cheer as their patients recover. I’m grateful for the body’s capacity to heal and all the people and technology and love that help that healing to happen. Most of all, I appreciate the support of the Divine, to surrender it all to the Mind of God and to know that all is well.
So, I release this prayer into the Law, knowing it is already unfolding in perfect order now for each and every person in need and those serving this holiday season. We are truly blessed by the Divine in each other. And so it is.
